Flow chemistry engineering specialists Vapourtec (Cambridge, UK) has extended its reach across South East Asia after signing a distribution agreement with Thailand-based ACI (Applied Chemical & Instrument Company).
The partnership with ACI is well timed given Vapourtec’s presence at the forthcoming Drug Development International Conference in Phuket where they will be exhibiting their easy-MedChem E-Series system.
Founded in 2005, ACI is headquartered in Bangkok and works with a number of multi-national specialist chemistry suppliers. ACI supplies commercial chemical companies and research institutes with a wide range of chemistry lab equipment.
Vapourtec founder and MD Duncan Guthrie commented:
“We already have distribution agreements in place for China, India, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan and Singapore with Asia as a whole representing a rapidly growing market for our range of continuous process technologies.
“Thailand is fast becoming one of those markets with a growing awareness of the potential benefits of flow chemistry processes. We are delighted to have linked up with ACI to ensure institutions across Thailand have access to the latest technologies,” added Duncan.
Supat Muangyot of ACI said:
“Vapourtec has a pre-eminent reputation within the field of flow chemistry with this agreement representing a milestone for chemistry in Thailand.”
